That was nasty...


I'll go along with the ride safe thing, but as much as I'm into gear, I don't think there's anything that you could put on that would be that "truck proof"...

I"d liked to find the newspaper article on that crash to see exactly who was at fault.

Scott,

Where in Mexico have you been run off the road? I used to spend a lot of time in Baja and it really is ridiculous how bad the drivers are there. At least the Mexican government has finally banned trucks with 3 trailers. It used to be pretty scary seeing that third trailer swinging back and forth 10 feet behind the big rigs...

What was the article about? I didn't want to sign up for the site (don't know what it is).

gruesome pictures of dead rider and passenger after head-on collision with a truck.

Ally, seriously, what kind of gear would protect one in head-on collision even at 40MPH?

And what kind of "safe riding" would save you from a truck that comes into your lane unexpectedly?

Seriously - what is the point of this post. The ONLY effect it may have on somebody is selling the bike and never riding again.

I agree with mtm. There is not much use in looking at those pics unless you want to be sick or learn about the human anatomy.

I won't thank you for that link...without knowledge of what happened, considering the bike seems to be in the wrong lane, this is nothing but voyeurism of other people's suffering.

I, for one, will thank you for that link. A picture of someone's face collapsed inward is that little tap on the shoulder I need to remind myself to be extra careful on my bike. Sometimes I find myself getting a little cocky or a little distracted and things like this, although unpleasant, are good warning signs for me (better than any posted speed limit :-/).
